Although the gifts you give varies from person to person, as a wife or husband you should be sensitive enough of what your partner wants or needs to make him or her happy. http://high-profile-gurgaon.in http://preetipant.in

Watch this space... my wife and I are right in the middle of closing on a house in Bar K. Once that is done (mid-June 2017?) you might find KC0MWB on the air. Stay tuned.

Each station is a link to page with the map, the elevation profile, and the repeaterbook.com data. Hope it's useful

I'm sure Sal is all over this, but i finally took the time to play with Google Earth, and found out why the best repeater for me to use isn't Allenspark, and isn't gold Hill, but it's Squaw Mountain. We have a completely clean line of sight to Squaw, and are totally obstructed to the other sites.

Did everyone get a copy of the August IPRC Newsletter? It has a fairly important article called "Background on ARES and Red Cross Relationships:" It also mentions MERN and "unafilliated" people like us. Every Ham in Bar-k Should read it. If you unsubscribed long ago or never got a newsletter, I have the artical itself that I could send you. It's a little long to print here (unless no one has it).

To all Bar K hams,

re: your current discussions about radio coverage in your area:

In case you are not already aware of it, the Allenspark repeater (/(147.030Mhz (+) and PL of 100.0Hz) /recently has been moved to the fire station near the intersection of 7 and 72 as a test location. This was done to escape a local interference problem at the Allenspark main fire station. For the most part it has improved coverage, but assessment of that is ongoing and I am sure the folks in Allenspark would welcome input on what effect it has in locations of interest to you. Steve Coles is the person to contact in Allenspark.

Another repeater that is accessible from many mountain locations is the LARC (Longmont Amateur Radio Club, http://w0eno.org/) system on
- 147.270 MHz(+), 100 Hz CTCSS tone, and
- 448.800 (-) offset of 5 MHz, 88.5 Hz CTCSS tone.
It currently is in a temporary location with reduced performance, but should be back up to full capability soon. All users are welcome there, too. Gerry Schmidt is the President of the club if you have questions that are not answered on the website.

Good idea Jeff. Solveig and I use what we call “Bar-K Sal” (445.825) for simplex when I go hiking around the neighborhood. We make it work by turning on the base station before I start out.

You could do something similar by alerting all of us by internet before you start out so that we could turn on our radios before you or anyone else was going out.

Leaving the base station always on to the Bar-k Sal frequency would work, but we wouldn’t always be where we could hear it. We can’t reliably hear our living room radio back in the bedroom for example.

When I go off to Estes or somewhere, we put the base station on to some repeater. My mobile can usually get to here from the AllensPark repeater all the way to Estes. You might be able to hit that repeater from your HT down on the trail.

Hey Gang, I'm going to propose we organize and activate ourselves a little bit. We just need to agree on something we can monitor more regularly for local traffic. For example, when I hiked back to look for fires tonight, I took my HT. I couldn't so much as hit a repeater from the trail, and couldn't reach anyone on simplex. If they hadn't complied, or had been on my side of the river and had looked like people I shouldn't engage in the dark, it would have been good to have been able to reach someone on the radio to call it in, or just to show someone you engage with that you have backup on the radio....

Anyhow, I recently purchased a Kenwood TS-2000, so for the first time I'm using a real base station. It's pretty amazing how crystal clear Squaw Mountain is. So with 3 radios now, and the fire, and all the transient/camper activity, it seems we should just agree on something we'll all try to monitor as often as possible, with the agreement it is for what we consider "local emergency use", something where one of us really needs to reach someone else. With that agreement, I'd be willing to sleep with radios on.

Anyone else feeling active?

Amateur (Ham) Radio Technician License Class- Class is FREE!

Taught by George Weber, KA0BSA,
Emergency Coordinator for Amateur Radio in Boulder and Broomfield Counties

RSVP to: George Weber - grweber47@gmail.com with your name, email and a phone number (in case class needs to be cancelled or rescheduled due to weather).

Why amateur radio when I have a cell phone?

During the Four mile fire and Boulder County floods, landline and cell phone coverage was disrupted, in some cases for many days. In the mountains, we are particularly susceptible to outages due to weather and wind. Amateur radio operators can step in to fill in the gap until normal operations resume if requested. In some cases, the “hams” were instrumental in getting help where needed. Amateurs can work as volunteers to augment County sheriff, fire and law enforcement when asked. It also is a great hobby sport. Mountain area amateurs in Boulder County and beyond have united in their efforts to “connect” mountain neighbors when needed. It’s not that hard to get started and be part of the Mountain Emergency Radio Network (MERN) and you will meet some great friends and neighbors.

The Technician class is fun and informative.

When: January 30 and 31 from 9am to around 3pm on both days.
Location: The new fire station in 4 Mile Canyon has a terrific conference/ training room. The Poorman station is located at 1750 Four Mile Canyon Rd near the intersection of Poorman Rd and 4 Mile Canyon Road.
RSVP: grweber47@gmail.com

You will need to purchase a text book for this class. It will become an
excellent reference after you have your license. The book is available
on line or on Amazon. It is about $22.
http://www.hamradioschool.com/tech-license-book/ or
http://www.amazon.com/HamRadioSchool-com-T...an+license+book+stu

At this time, the plan is to offer testing for the weekend of February 6th if that would work for most participants. Those ready for upgrades to the General class or Extra Class licenses may also take their exams at that time. Alternately, there are locations in Louisville and Longmont which offer monthly exam sessions if you need more time to study. There is a nominal fee to take the FCC exam.

Supported by: The Mountain Emergency Radio Network. There is a local group for support near you - Allenspark Neighbors Emergency Network (ANEN); Gold Hill AirLinK Repeater Club; Bar K Amateurs; Indian Peaks Radio Club, Nederland; BCARES (Boulder County Amateur Radio Emergency Services)

All, This will be great and is sponsored by the Intermountain Alliance. I’d like to see all radio club members attend if possible (any radio club!). This speaker will be awesome and he will make it pertinent for anyone in the mountains. Hope you can make it. If you are not interested, please pass along to anyone who may be.

Jeff, I may be the only one, at least out of the semi-active people in Bar-K, that still only has a Moto-saurus (maybe some day...). The old beast doesn't have any frequencies near that high programmed into it. That is why we have been using 146.550 for our net attempts (that may go better after New Years). So, for the time being, that would be the best frequency; but, only if you want to talk to ME. Sal and Phil can do 445.825.

- Specifically, what would you be monitoring to see if you could be assistance?
- 445.825 for any local needs/emergencies?

Made in China but...

If you want to hear more and do more 25 bucks gets you one of these.
(If you purchase an inexpensive antenna adapter cord for your home antenna you can probably hit MANY MORE repeaters than are programmed into the Motorola)-And it's portable so a mag mount antenna on your car would get you far for almost no dough.
I have the software and cable to aid in programming...

MERN Ham Radio Class

I will be teaching a Technician Class ham radio class in the Allenspark Community on October 11th

from 9am to 3pm and on the 12th from 10am to about 1pm. We will break for lunch and everyone

should bring a "brown bag" lunch and your own drinks and snacks for the day.

You will have to buy a study book: Technician License Course from HamRadioSchool.com.

You can get it from Ham Radio Outlet in Denver or also form Amazon for about $19: http://

smile.amazon.com/HamRadioSchool-com-Technician-License-Course-Turner/dp/1477595457/

ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1404678602&sr=8-1&keywords=ham+radio+school . Be sure you get

the book for 2014 to 2018 and designate BCARES as your "Smile" recipient (Thanks!). The exam

questions changed slightly after the first of July so older book will not be the best resource.

I will have an ARRL Volunteer Examination team back on Thursday evening October 16th so you

can take the test. We will talk about how to study for the test and you should have plenty of time to

prepare. I have had very good success and everyone can pass.

Please get back with me to confirm your attendance. If you know other people who would like to get

their ham radio license, please have them get in touch with me and share this information. There

is no age limit to get your license, "the more the merrier" as far as I'm concerned and anyone may

attend. I just need to know how much material to prepare. I do lots of demonstrations and will try to

answer all questions.

I am looking forward to meeting all of you,

George R Weber - KA0BSA

Hi Sal,
I received your contact info from someone in Gold Hill who I believe got it from Joe Callahan.
I'm with a group in Gold Hill who is installing a new 2-meter repeater for our area as part of the MERN effort. We call our group AirLink. I'm curious to know what your set up is there - like what repeater do you typically use is there a group of hams, etc.

Basically, we've been asked by several surrounding communities to tell them what we have set up for the MERN effort and offer advice. This is in response to the news that the state may have some funding for this effort if we band together.

We found we can cover a large portion of our surrounding area when we tested a couple of weeks ago, but we didn't quite reach Jamestown. We don't have our repeater up full time yet, but hope to in the near future. We believe transmission "ears" could be installed in certain areas that would allow everyone in surrounding communities (Jamestown, Allens Park, Lyons, Nederland) to hit our repeater. It needs to be engineered, of course. I just wonder if that is something the hams in your area would welcome. I'm a new ham, so don't know a lot yet, but it seems like it would be good to be on the same repeater in an emergency. What are your thoughts?

MERN Message

The state will fund a system that will address the Jamestown, Lyons, Gold Hill, Allens Park and Nederland Ham network. At the IMA meeting the state see's that a Ham system would benefit all of us and tie the system in with state of the art equipment. IMA has ask us to put together a cost and who would head up the engineering of it.
The State has looked at what is going on with the relocation of the Gold Hill repeater and are very interested in the progress and the test that were completed. As the Gold Hill project moves on they want feedback with the progress and also like the fact that we will connect to the EOC. BCARES is in the process of doing classes for Mountain communities this fall.

We have set up an advisory group to work on the project.The Gold Hill system is in the building stage of the installation and we will report back to MERN as the project proceeds. Our system will be off the power grid and we have a Solar company that is advising us off what we need with panels and the power on it now. The system is in the beginning stage and the Red Cross has funded the Repeater.

The Gold Hill Town is also funding it with hope we get grants to off-set our cost. For more information on the progress you can call 303-443-0138 or e-mail NuggetHillrd@gmail.com

We are very excited with this project.

I took a look at your Chimney on the way bu Phil, and yes, you can get something up there the same way I did mine. And it's totally worth it. The world just got a lot bigger for me

Been programming in more repeaters, and seeing what sort of range I'm getting now. Aside from all the local ones, some of the more surprising ones I hit today:

- 145.400 - Akron, CO
- 145.310 - Colorado Springs
- 147.075 - Kremmling (barely)
- 147.225 - Conifer (but not the 447.150 in Conifer)
- 145.340 - Evergreen
- 449.825 - Broomfield

Colorado Springs and Kremmling were big surprises, and Akron was a little surprising how clear it is, and that i could hit it on Low power (5W)

Sure Phil, I'll be up there sometime soon and can get some pictures, and can write up a description.

But in short, this antenna comes with two brackets that hold the antenna onto whatever mast you are using via two U-Bolts. If you remove the U-bolts and flip the brackets around, they're perfect for flush mounting.
It's mounted onto a piece of 2x4 that is all screwed into the framing of the chimney on one corner with 3 1/2" deck screws. The antenna and hardware is all rated to 124 MPH, so as long as my construction holds, it should be fine.

Took a journey to HRO yesterday, and came home with a new Diamond X-200 antenna. Got up on the roof this morning (only got hailed on once), and mounted it on the corner of our chimney, and ran the cable to it. Wow...what a difference a few more dB of gain and 30' or so makes! Last week I tried hitting Allenspark's repeater for the ANEN Net, but had to relay through Sal. Now, not only can I hit that, but the 2m in Estes is actually usable. One more baby step for me!

Hey Gang, Sal's 17 Feet of antenna power (insert Tim the Toolman GRUNT sound) is connected to the Allenspark Repeater for their net that starts at 8:00, and he has it crosslinked to the 445.825 (Superstation of the Bar-K). You should be able to reach him on an HT from almost anywhere if you want to at least listen in, and participate if so desired.

copied from another forum..new hams !
Congratulations to all our new hams!
 If you haven't already located them on the FCC ULS database, your new call signs are listed below.
 
We are planning a 'hands on' class to help you 'get on the air'.
On Monday, March 17th, 10am at the Memorial Observatory join us to learn how to actually use your new HT.
 
We will 1)help you program your HT.
2) Show you software that makes it easy, and 3) we will program the 35 most used frequencies for Northern Colorado for you.
Plus you will 4) learn how to operate simplex, 5) use the repeater, and 6) how to connect to the Internet with IRLP and Echolink.
 
Even if you don't have your HT yet, come anyway, as we will loan you an HT to use for the class.
 
If that date doesn't work for you, join us any Saturday at 8 am at the Olympus Lodge and we will get you on the air!
 
73,
Dave

Bob and Steve should be particularly well-informed about the needs in the area you describe. They might already know a good place for it the radio you have. We are all inventing how to get the most out of MERN and they have volunteered to handle this extra responsibility with a mountain perspective.
    Pleas work with them.

Sal, if someone (not me) has a bad radio to switch with that one, don't forget to record both serial numbers. As I understand it, that would be one of the main advantages of having one or two people administer all of the Maratracs.

Thank You Joe...
 the distinction I'm making is people that live in the Bar-K Ranch, High Lake sub-division, Sky Ranch Estates, Matoon Highlands, Peak to Peak and Raymond/Allenspark mountain areas. As I understand it, that was the whole reason so many gathered in Allenspark and were helped get Technician certifications to then be able to participate in M.E.R.N. in the mountain area we call our's... right?

Unfortunately, some of these folks may still not have a functioning radio or might have had issues with the one they received. I'm pretty sure that if someone "local" received one it would indeed be beneficial to our "community"

If someone needs to make an executive decision on this..well so be it if not then the question stands....

Who needs a radio ?

With respect...

Sal,
      
      From where I live in Longmont everyone West of US 36 is "mountain people" and lives "up there", so the distinction you seem to be making is lost on me.
      That said, those radios are a finite resource and I'd like to see them used to provide connection to community resources for "pods" of residents that don't have ham support yet and have no one able to afford a real ham radio - a little selective, not just first asks, first gets. If there is a situation like that in the area that you prefer, fine. If not, let's see what more beneficial alternative can be worked out.
      Thanks,
      Joe

Hey Joe... I was given this extra radio with the hope of passing it to someone "up here"...a mountain person so to speak... With that intent in mind would it not make sense to "skip the middle man" in this case and have someone local be able to claim it directly ? If that makes sense I repeat the "Who needs one" question, if not the radio can be picked up at 538 Ranch Rd in the Bar-K.... Just let me know when.

Steve Coles and Bob McDonald are taking on the "quartermaster" function for those radios, receiving, storing and redistributing them where they will be of the greatest benefit. Please turn it in to one of them.

I am also monitoring both local repeaters "Channel 1" Gold Hill 146.805 and "Channel 2" Allenspark 147.030 same thing..... if want to say hello give me a shout.

Also as a side note every Saturday the Estes Pk radio guys meet for breakfast (in Estes) anyone having interest in that (maybe after the holidays) speak up and we could caravan.......

Hi Bob,

It looks like most of the people with radios that need to be reprogramed would be available this afternoon or tomorrow afternoon, if either of those times would be convenient for you. We would set them up at Sal DeVincenzo’s house here in Bar-K.

The boys & I are free tomorrow afternoon, Sal. Not sure about Sunday....
For everyone else, Sal & I took a trip down to HRO last weekend. I'd been shopping, reading, and deciding for a year, and I guess I finally had made up my mind. My intent was to pick up a Kenwood TM-D710A, and whatever other damage we could come up with. I was playing with the idea of a nice HT as well, so I knew I was going to get myself in trouble.
Sure enough...I did :)

I brought home two radios. The TM-D710GA is the mobile. It's not even on the Kenwood web site yet, but it's a TM-D710A with built-in GPS and APRS modules, meaning I can grow into it for a long time as I learn my way around. It was encouraging to hear all the old-timers talking about how they had worked their way through different D7xx models over the years, and how universally loved these radios have been. I can only hope this one serves me as well.

I also bought a Kenwood TH-D72A. Being matched to the D710, it means that not only can I monitor my Mobile from my HT (since they're both Dial band), but when doing so i can even control the mobile from the HT. Well, I'll be able to as soon as I have enough time to learn all about it.

Add in antenna, a couple of cables and a mount for the antenna, and we were all set. Some help from Sal on Monday, and the Prius is now radio-enabled. We tested it out this week when I drove to Longmont via highway 7 and Lyons, and I was able to hit Sal on 445.825 simplex virtually the whole way, barring a small hole past Peaceful Valley. And once in town, the Simplex sounded like he was sitting next to me...it was pretty awesome.

So lots of learning left to do, but it's fun to be on the way finally with something other than the Motosaurus. By the way, is someone going to collect those and return them for the next generation?

It turns out 440.825 is a repeater frequency for D-Star digital.....

So I went ahead and changed the 70 centimeter Simplex / Echolink frequency to 445.825 I'm calling this frequency the "Official" Bar-K simplex frequency for 70 Cm.

Let's keep the "other" "official" 2 Meter simplex frequency 146.805 as is (Channel 8) so either of these frequencies should/could be used to talk to nearby stations in lieu of using a repeater with the additional capability of Echolink on 445.825
Hope that is not confusing.

Okay for Echolink...

Once you set your radio (dual band)to transmit on 445.825 (simplex) you can touchtone any Echolink repeater in the world and connect to it and talk.(You are doing this "through" my radio and Echolink computer)

Don't be afraid to try it, it is fun..
To connect and talk to (for example) Estes Park local repeater via Echolink do the following:

Tune to 445.825 (simplex no tones and probably low power if we are neighbors)
Listen that there is no one else you might disturb first.

Announce your call and your intention to connect to Echolink node 625757

Hold the transmit button (PTT) and key in the six digits 6 2 5 7 5 7

Listen for the connection to be made.

Listen for traffic...then call for any station you would like to speak with.

Try calling W 9 I N E - Larry

When done announce you are disconnecting node.

Touchtone "#" and you will hear the disconnect

You are done.

I'll be listening...both Phil and Jeff were able to do it so give it a try.

Programming some Motorola radios with a different set of frequencies would be a mistake because then there will be confusion over which "channel" numbers to use to let differently programmed radios connect. You don't want that when you are dealing with an emergency. "Customizing" them also would be a burden on the people doing the programming. BCARES will be delighted to see people finding uses for other frequencies, but that is when you need to get real ham radios that give you that flexibility on top of using the 16 frequencies in the Mototolas, which are designed for STANDARDIZED use.
      The Motorola radios that BCARES handed out were modified from their Police and Fire configuration. I don't know for sure, but that might have included disabling transmission on non-ham frequencies, to prevent accidental rule violations, even though you still can listen there.
      It's great to see interest in alternative technology like Echolink. BCARES uses internet based capabilities. We put our repeater net on Echolink during the flood so that people elsewhere could listen to our operations, and had to shut off the ability for them to interfere by talking to us. We also put our Amateur TV coverage of helicopter rescue and supply operations at Boulder airport on VUstream, and we have been told that it was watched at the Department of Homeland Security (FEMA) and the White House. As for using Echolink or the similar IRLP (Internet Radio Linking Project) in the mountains during emergencies - that's fine as long as your broadband access to the internet is working. BCARES embraces the latest technologies but always with the ability to fall back on ham radio that works when nothing else does.

Or the path could be:

Hmmm I bet they won't let us run wild with the programming gear because of the police channel transmit ability of these radios.
I have a solution...Everyone buy a cool new radio. Right...
On an easier note:

We have an official Echolink Node for Bar-K Ranch the number is 755677. The node or more accurately "Simplex Link or Simplex Repeater" is very simple in concept and operation but very powerful at the same time. It is also, unfortunately a mode of operation that requires a DTMF touch tone pad on your radio. (iPad, iPhone or Android work in lieu of a real radio) Here is how it works.....A radio user in the Bar-K carrying a hand held HT (or mobile or base) has a friend in let's say Glenwood Springs. Too far for simplex on the low power little radio and no repeater. ....enter Echolink. Let's use Phil as the Bar-K ham and Jeff as the Glenwood Springs ham.

Phil sets his HT to our Echolink node radio simplex (no tone)frequency 440.825. He transmits an announcement that he would like to use Echolink to connect to the Glenwood Springs Echolink Repeater. Once he announces that, he keys in the 6 digit node number of that Echolink repeater 908980. Almost immediately the two systems are joined together like they were side by side. Phil then after ID'ing himself puts out a call for Jeff (who is monitoring the local radio repeater) and they connect.
The path is:
 
 Phil's HT -> Sal's Desktop Yaesu FT 8900 radio -> Sal's Echolink Interface -> Sal's Computer -> Out to the internet -> Glenwood Springs computer -> Glenwood Springs Echolink Interface -> Glenwood Springs repeater radios -> Jeffs HT.

Or the path could be:

 Sal's Computer -> Internet -> Glenwood Springs Computer -> Glenwood Springs Echolink Interface -> Glenwood Springs Repeater -> Jeffs HT.

Or the path could be:

 Sal's iPad -> Internet -> Glenwood Springs Computer -> Glenwood Springs Echolink Interface -> Glenwood Springs Repeater -> Jeffs Computer

It goes on and on....
Die hard ham's might argue that using Echolink, since it isn't using RF all the way it is somehow cheating...
I'm not a die hard but I know it makes this hobby about 100x more fun and versatile.
The reason is that someone in say..Hawaii who wants to talk to Bar-K local hams only needs to know our node number and Bam..they are connected. Or in an emergency someone in Boulder could connect to Echolink and communicate with us.
The cool thing is if I made any of it sound complicated it isn't. If you can work the radio or a cell phone you can push the buttons needed to communicate to any part of the world.........or down the street.

Go ahead Phil or anyone who can tune in 440.825 (across the street so low power would be nice) in your radio and call me KC0RDJ and I will show you how you link my Echolink here to another anywhere and then talk.....

73's

PS the 440.825 may need to be changed at some point to a different freq.

After reading (finally) all of Joe Callahan's meeting minutes, it sounds like another repeater will be installed; this one in Nederland/Eldora. Perhaps we should wait until we know what that frequency will be, then program two frequencies at once. Either that or Bar-K might as well get its own cable and software to keep up with however many new frequencies there might be ongoing. And I certainly would not volunteer Sal for anything like that ...

Phil, the actual programming doesn't look like it is insurmountably hard by itself. The HARD part is aquiring the needed components: a PC, a special cable (to go between the PC and the radio), and the specific software, not to mention the key to open the radio. Since the Allenspark people have these things, we definitely want their help.

MERN-BCARES Meeting 11-21-13 in the Ward Library.

Attendees:
BCARES – Joe Callahan
Allenspark – Bob McDonald and Steve Coles
Raymond – Bill Ellis
Bar-K Ranch – Phil Ingersoll
Ward – Karelle Scharff
Foothills United Way – Amy Hardy

The meeting was organized by BCARES (Joe Callahan) to help improve the coordination between BCARES and MERN and to see if there was anything BCARES could do to increase the readiness of the mountain folk.

Ward, Allenspark, Bar-K and Gold Hill are trying to get more of its HAM operators on the air and familiar with their equipment. At present only one Ward HAM has her base station operating. The others in that neighborhood have problems with their power supplies and/or antennas and are not on the air. Allenspark has just 3 HAMs who regularly practice with their radios. Gold Hill has a repeater but no active HAM operators. I reported that the Bar-K HAMs were on the air, mostly, but that we had trouble coordinating practice time using the radios. Overall about 60 people have signed up to become MERN HAMs but not many are actually on the air.

The Allenspark HAMs at the meeting said that they would help with setting up equipment for those who were having trouble getting on the air. The United Way rep suggested that BCARES and MERN create a Memorandum-of-Understanding so that funding requests to help the mountain communities could go through the BCARES organization. She said that they had a considerable amount of funds to distribute and that more funding was coming in all the time. The United Way rep will help write up the MOU for BCARES and MERN and will try to get our grant requests submitted in the right format and to the right person. She is optimistic that requests focused on solving future problems will be funded.

As an aside, two Allenspark people received funds from charities as part of a group request but the checks were written to the individuals who wrote the requests and they came with 1099 forms! They haven’t decided how to handle this issue, maybe form a LLC?

==> The Allenspark HAMs invited us (Bar-K) to join their regular Tuesday night at 7pm net practice sessions to increase the number of people signing in on their repeater (147.030) and to give us practice.

On the question of how to recognize that an emergency is developing, a suggestion was made that everyone in the community should try to be aware and to alert their neighbors, especially neighbors with HAM radios when they think something is wrong. Waiting for an official notification from the sheriff or fire personnel is way too late. Another idea would be to give the “Block Heads” weather radios or walkie-talkies or even CB radios that would stay on all the time. The idea is to try to avoid the normal one hour delay before the community recognizes that there is a problem.

Another suggestion was made that all the mountain HAMs should do some coverage mapping to see which repeaters they can hear and talk to. HAMs who can converse with more than one repeater can serve as relay stations during an emergency, relaying and logging important messages from one repeater to the next. For example, Allenspark could not reach BCARES when they needed to evacuate kids from a church camp during the flood, so they talked to LARC (Longmont), and the message was relayed to BCARES, and the kids were rescued. The BCARES shack is connected to the Boulder County Emergency Management headquarters and can get important messages through when other methods like email and phone fail because the emergency managers are overloaded and are dealing with thousands of messages all at the same time.

Interesting, Phil. I read up on that a little, and the impression I'm left with is:

- LEDs themselves do not emit any RFI. If you ran those lights off of DC, they'd be quiet as could be

- most LEDs with built in cheap rectifiers don't emit RFI more than a few inches (if you're using a HT, you can move it close to an LED to hear the interference)

- Some bulbs are way worse than others. There's a lot of concerns that LEDs manufactured in china generally have fraudulent certification that they've met RFI requirements, so maybe look for some made elsewhere?
Remember the first lesson of this hobby, "You can make it as expensive as you want"? You can add to your list "Rewire house to provide DC to any place we want to use LED lighting" :-)

Mystery Solved

Last night while I was waiting for the Bar-K ARC networking, there was so much interference that I really couldn’t hear much of anything. Even the weather channel was full of static. I don’t know if anyone was networking or not. I removed the portable phone from my shack, even put my iPhone back in the house and turned off my computer. Still static.

This morning everything was quiet as a church. No static and I was able to ping Gold Hill easily. Then I turned my new super efficient LED yard lights back on: NOISE everywhere!
The answer is, watch out for LED lights!

As the BCARES liaison to MERN I am eager to gather input from the mountain communities about your post-flood priorities in terms of what you would like to have BCARES do or help you do to build on what has been accomplished so far. We want to include these priorities in BCARES planning and to get your feedback on our plans.

My problem has been "Who do I ask?" Who would be acceptable to the neighborhood and willing to be my contact person for Bar K Ranch? And would that person be able to attend a meeting some time this week, perhaps Thursday morning in Ward, to get things started?

As I said before Sunday night is NO good for me. That's why I was moaning and sighing when I started using the wrong symbols. I was talking about Saturday and Sal just up and said ok Sunday it is.

Well, I am going to try to talk to anybody else tonight at 9:00 that wants to. Be on Ch. 9 Manual (not scan) 146.400.

So, while we have plenty of time to work out details, lets do so. Sunday night is not good for me. Any time Saturday IS good.

If everyone who has chimed in (or had planned to), could verify their availability for Saturday, we could then find a start time. Since I can start anytime, I will leave it to others to suggest an optimal start time.

That would be fine Larry...
Too bad not everyone's radio is programmed for Allenspark repeater because that "neighborhood" is reachable simplex / repeater from here.
Don't know if anyone in Gold Hill can hear me simplex but I can easily hit that repeater too.
Should be the same for you.

11-11-2013

Sal, we definitely should do both. I don't have a second radio, so no channels to twiddle. I only have the Motorola. Ch 1 is the Gold Hill repeater (146.805 +100) and Ch 9 is local simplex (146.400). If anyone in Bar-K could reach the Gold Hill repeater, but not all of the rest of us on simplex, that would be important to know. But, I would be surprised if that was the case.

Why, for a first attempt would we want anyone outside of the Bar-K to join in (unless they were in range of us in simplex)? I think we would be better off getting comfortable talking to each other first before including the "rest of the world." I vote we start with simplex first. After a little conversation between ourselves, we should make sure everyone can reach the Gold Hill repeater.

Perhaps a too literal interpretation of my wording "blow up" which to me amounts to lightning getting to it and letting out the special black smoke. One of the methods we use to ground our Fullsignal internet repeaters is to run cooper wire up and slightly above the highest component by a few inches in theory making the components below it "less desirable" if a strike occurs. I guess another reason they ground towers is to protect the foundation and guy wiring from exploding. You can see pictures of that online.

Larry using the repeater might be more realistic, allows for others to join in and ensures we can all talk to the repeater reliably. Actually you can do both (simples and repeater) if you twiddle the channels but a dual receive radio would be easier.
Let's shoot for Saturday

Hi Gang,

If I may add a few comments on "aerials." For more then 35 years I have had at least one antenna over my head. I have never had a problem with lightning. Now watch, I just cursed myself… :-)

The one problem I had was with wind generated static electricity on an ungrounded antenna. I had forgotten to ground it after use and heard snapping - discharge from the center conductor to the shield of the coax. As I approached it to connect it to ground I got bitten. It felt much like any static poke like you might from a door knob but with a BIGGER jolt up to my elbow. It didn't kill me.

I have NEVER seen a radio "blow-out" or burst into flames from
lightning. The worst is a few fried components that had to be repaired. Keep your radio grounded. Many antennas, Diamond X-50s and J-poles are looped to ground by design, and offer a good amount of protection if the radio is grounded. A conductive (copper or iron) water pipe close by is actually better then trying to drive a ground rod into our soil here in the mountains. As an extra protection you can add a lead from ground, with a clip on it, and take the antenna off the radio and connect the ground directly to the center part of the coax connector when not in use.
None of this comes with a guarantee against a natural disaster. But I can guarantee one thing - the radio won't work with out an antenna.
Hope to hear you on the air soon,

Robert. All I've done is ground my tower. There are hundreds of pages online talking about grounding vs. not grounding. My only concern is blowing up the radio so I disconnect the coax outside in the Spring when we have lots of lightning....sometimes. Put it up ! Run a wire into the ground and attach it to something metal if it helps you not worry and let's talk....!

Robert, whether your antenna acts as a lightning rod some day is a low odds crap shoot, and there is nothing that could be done to 100% prevent it. But, it still needs to be grounded properly to insure the antenna's best chance for survival. Sometimes an antenna/lightning rod can dissipate charges in the atmosphere before the charges become an actual strike. Again, though, if lightning is going to strike, it's going to strike.

The first thing you need to do is locate any ground rods (not lightning rods) asocciated with your house. This will be a 3/4" diameter copper alloy rod several feet long that has been driven into the actual ground. It may be next to the foundation of the house outside, or it could be inside the house, driven before the concrete slab was poured for the lowest floor. If you don't have one visible that you can attach a ground wire to, you will need to drive a new one underneath the part of the roof near where your antenna is. Then you would run a length of 4 guage copper wire from the mast on the roof to the available ground rod. They make special clamps to connect 4 guage copper wire to the ground rod. Without such a ground, your antenna would be more likely to attract lightning that would find a way to ground through some part of your roof and through the inside of your house. Not good.

Hope this helps.

My radio is not quite set up, because I'm worried about the antenna on the roof acting as a lightning rod (so I haven't put it there yet). Can anyone give me any local advice or reassurance on this point? Do any of you worry about this, and if so how do you deal with it? I want to be able to say that it's all set!

Robert Schaller
10-07-2013
06:42 AM MT (US)
Thanks, Sal!

I figure that it should be a project for next weekend, and I would certainly appreciate any help!
I figure there are several steps, starting with the question "is putting a metal rod on the roof of my house a lightning hazard? And if so, can that be mitigated, or does it need to go somewhere else?" (Anyone have any thoughts on that one? Will it attract lightning? Does it need a wire directly to ground to safely conduct that lightning? Or does it need a slightly higher lightning rod right next to it?)
If it can go on the roof, then, where and how to mount it? Then, get the necessary hardware, then install the antenna. I'm thinking to install a piece of pipe through the eve of a dormer gable, supported beneath by the main roof and strapped to the dormer wall, protruding above the roof peak.
As to the radio itself, I can get 12V right away off the house system, but a better result would be to get a DC to DC converter to go from 24V (which is the official household voltage) to 12V. In any event, the radio itself is easy; it's the antenna that seems like it will be some work!
How have people been installing their antennas? Are there any guides out there that anyone would recommend?

Yes Boulder Canyon Is Open Confirmed by the seat of my pants ! Serious upgrade to the commute. 55 minutes 36 miles from McGucks through Ned to home over silky smooth Peak to Peak Hwy. Boulder Canyon looked almost untouched until you get to the narrows area and then you see where they patched in about 1/8 mile of new road...hardly a bump but I'd be a bit wary of rocks falling still. Pretty sure going down will be quicker since we were hauling a trailer loaded with 2000 lbs of wood pellets. Small victory for all and we now have a semi-convenient rest-stop in Nederland! I bet Sunshine traffic will return to a more manageable level now. BTW there was a large crew of TV news trucks at the base of the canyon...Edited 10-06-2013 07:06 PM

Radio setup!

So, I haven't set up my radio, and I know I'm not the only one! The flood and how it has cut us off have inspired me to finally set it up, but this will require setting up the antenna on the roof, etc.. I imagine it would be the same for everyone, so I wonder, are there others who would like to team up and set up some radios today now that the rain has stopped?
Let me know -- we could help each other!

(Thanks Harry)

The Allenspark repeater will be installed in the firehouse on Saturday, August 10. The BCARES team expects to arrive there about 9 AM. The repeater will be available for interested folks to view for about 30 minutes before the installation gets underway.

We will be looking for 2 or 3 able-bodied MERN operators to help with the installation, which will involve lifting the repeater (20 x 24 x 36H) to a platform about 12 feet above the floor. There will be some antenna and coax installation to do, too, all with experienced supervision.

We also hope to reprogram at least some of the donated radios that same day, to add the new repeater frequency, which was not known when the radios were originally programmed. Which ones we are able to do might be limited by the availability of some specialized equipment that day.

Max has All State Band performance and an audition for music school all crammed into this weekend.
Anyone that is really wanting to get cable soon-let me know and we'll try and find a time to meet up....

Hey Sal,
Let's increase my order to 50', if you don't mind. I really said 20 because I thought that was all we had left in our 1000' spool.
Thanks,
sje

The stiffer cable is $.37 per foot when bought in a 1000 foot spool and $.50 by the individual foot. The ultraflex cable is $.89 per foor in a 1000 ft spool and $ 1.00 by the individual foot. The connectors are about $4.00 each.The price seems to fluctuate a little on the cable so whatever I pay is what the group pays.

Sal, please post the prices: the stiffness decision depends on them. Thanks.

Phil great question, the center conductur is Copper coated Aluminum and is solderable. The outer shield is Tin plated Copper and is solderable as well.

Can you solder the connectors to the aluminum conductor or do you have to crimp them on? Phil

I received a cable sample (RFC-400) today from Shireen company and then phoned them. https://www.shireeninc.com/low-loss-rf-coax-cables-uv-rated/
The sample looks very good and the sales rep I spoke with told me that this cable is made in the same plant and out of the same materials as the much more expensive Times Microwave brand. One thing to note is this type cable is a bit "stiff" since it has a foam core and solid copper coated aluminum center conductor. There is an LMR 400 Ultraflex version cable that is much more flexible but it costs about 3 times as much. (I will post the price in another message) Anyone who thinks this is a factor worth considering and wants to order some of the more flexible cable should speak up now. I'll add that the stiffness is not a real problem but you cannot bend this cable too too much without hurting it (see photo) That said I feel confident purchasing this cable and wanted to ask everyone how they would like to pay for this purchase before I make it. The easiest way would be Paypal or something similar-I would accept a check or cash and hoping to make distributing this cable as easy as possible-maybe by picking one day for distribution etc. Thanks.

Correction
Steve, Sure it wasn't 158.850 ? (your radio tuning steps may need adjusting in the menu to get it exactly)
That would be Boulder County Green -very strong signal here.

Can you hit 146.805 repeater?
100mhz tone 600 meg negative shift....

Hi all,
Does anyone happen to know who uses 158.847 MHz? I was out scanning with my new HT today, and got a strong signal there. It was clearly some kind of law-enforcement dispatch, but it's not listed on radioreference.com (http://www.radioreference.com/apps/db/?ctid=247).
